Nanshy Foundation Brushes Set

I've been meaning to review these fab brushes for about a million years (or roughly since the end of last year) but I've only just found all my pictures so I can finally show them all off nicely!

better than real techniques brushes

At the time of receiving these, I'd already been using - and loving - the eye brush set for a few weeks, so I was tickled pink when I got my hands on these!
good quality brushes

The brushes themselves are the same wonderful quality of the eye makeup brushes from the brand. The handles are a highly attractive pearly white, with the brand name embossed into them. These unfortunately don't have the name/description of the brush printed on the handle which was a little touch I really liked about the eye brushes, but isn't a major issue in the grand scheme of things!
And really, if I was that desperate to know which is which, I could just look at them! Included in this set are a flat top buffer brush, a round buffer brush, a pointed brush, a flat angled bugger brush and an angled buffer brush. They are all very useful but each has a particular area of strength - the round buffer brush, for example, is my favourite for applying foundation (by which I mean bb cream as I've never actually used a proper foundation but I imagine its the same sort of thing!), whereas the pointed one is really handy for getting into more awkward areas properly (around eyes and noses etc!). The flat top buffer brush, on the other hand, is my go-to for applying blusher!

what's in the nanshy set?

The bristles, as well as being synthetic and vegan friendly, are densely packed together for a great finish, and incredibly soft - a real pleasure to use!

The full set is available from Amazon for BeautyStore4U £34.95, or if you don't need that many you can buy them individually for around £10 each. And if you need any advice on the best brushes for you, or just want to say a friendly hello, you can find Nanshy on twitter here.
